Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Depending on the person, laser hair removal can last for months and even years. It may require six sessions or more to get the optimal results. You can also come in for regular appointments to maintain your results. When the hair returns, it often grows thinner and lighter.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Some possible side effects of laser hair removal may include slight swelling and redness. While it’s not the same for everyone, these side effects are completely normal and should subside within a few days.

If you experience blistering, irritation, discoloration, or signs of infection, please consult with our team right away. These side effects are rare but should be treated right away.

Is It Painful?

During the treatment, you may experience a slight stinging sensation; however, patients do not generally find laser hair removal painful. After your session, we will apply ice or cold water to the area to soothe the skin and relieve some redness.

How Should I Care for My Skin After My Treatment?

Following your laser hair removal treatment, protecting your skin is important to ensure proper healing. Avoid direct sunlight and apply sunscreen whenever possible. It’s also a good idea to avoid indoor tanning and sunlamps.
